• Crossroads
Thank you so much for your interest in Crossroads School! Every day our community of nearly 1,200 kindergarten through 12th-graders connect and challenge one another in deep and meaningful ways. Our extraordinary faculty and staff are academic and personal mentors as our students grow from 5-year-olds into young adults who are poised to effect positive change in our world.

At Crossroads, one of our founding commitments is to develop and sustain a student population of racial, ethnic and socio-economic diversity.  We do not want the full cost of tuition to be a deterrent for any family who feels their child would thrive at Crossroads. In keeping with this commitment, our Tuition Reduction Fund (TRF) program provides support so that all students may have access to a Crossroads education.
Crossroads offers our students a unique environment to collaborate, question and ultimately find their individual passions and voice to advocate for themselves and others. To bear witness to each child’s growth and development over their time at Crossroads is an honor and a profound experience for all of us who work here.

Our primary goal in the Admissions Office is to create a relationship with your family so that you may determine if Crossroads is a match for you. We feel a relationship-based approach to admissions most closely relates to how our faculty and students work together each day. We truly hope we may help your family in the following ways:
  • Introduce your family to our unique educational philosophy and founding commitments.
  • Offer experiences so you may visualize your child and your family as part of our community.
  • Guide you through a reflective application process that naturally allows you to consider how a Crossroads education might align with your family’s values and priorities.
  • Encourage you to provide us with as complete and authentic a portrait of your child as possible.

Crossroads is committed to helping each of our students realize their full human potential, and through this academic and personal growth, change the world for the better. Each child’s journey is a family’s journey, and we are excited to serve as your guides in the school search process. Please be in touch with us for any assistance you might need.
